One clear highlight is the water and land Olympic games. Exciting and fun competitions including canoeing, sliding, surfbike races, tug-o-war, bull riding, fun-kart-racing and much more.
The greatest holiday delight often lies in the small things. Finally, mum and dad have time to be children again at one of the numerous adventure playgrounds around Innsbruck, Aldrans, Birgitz, Götzens, Igls, Natters, Oberperfuss, Rinn or Rum, for instance. In order to get there you often do not even have to take your car. Simply catch public transport and off you go! Active families should definitely pay a visit to the park of Muttereralm: inside this large natural theme park, guests can dig for gold, splash in the water, balance on logs, and dash down into the valley on mountain carts. An experience you could easily become hooked onto!
Anyone who has wanted to understand how a ski jumper feels before setting off down the ski jump, where emperors and kings used to reside and what a brown bear looks like close up needs to spend their family holidays in Innsbruck. The capital city of Tyrol is thus also worth a visit with kids. After a short five-minute drive from Hotel Seppl, you can easily reach numerous highlights that will delight your children in Innsbruck’s historic old town. You can get exciting insights into the life of emperor Maximilian at the famous Golden Roof, Hofburg or Hofkirche, where the “Schwarze Mander” have kept watch until today. Very close to these sights, there are sparkles to be seen – Swarovski Innsbruck excites older and younger children with its shiny crystal selection. A visit to the legendary Alpenzoo is another must – you can come face-to-face with wolves, brown bears, lynxes, golden eagles and more. The seemingly bizarre hobby of many residents of Innsbruck will definitely inspire tech-savy kids: the pastime of “plane spotting” is finding an increasing number of fans. We have to admit – the landing manoeuvres of incoming planes during gusty winds and scarily close to the mountains can be very spectacular! A family holiday in Innsbruck would not be complete without a trip up the Bergisel ski jump. Literally a high-light with a breathtaking view!
